Publisher's Summary

Scott Fenney is a hotshot corporate lawyer at a big Dallas firm. At 33, in the prime of his life, he rakes in $750,000 a year, drives a Ferrari, and comes home every night to a mansion in Dallas' most exclusive neighbourhood.He also comes home to one of Dallas' most beautiful women, with whom he has a much-loved daughter, Boo. For Fenney, life could not be better. But when a senator's son is killed in a hit-and-run, Fenney is asked by a state judge to put his air-conditioned lifestyle on hold to defend the accused: a black, heroin-addicted prostitute, a client very different from the people Fenney usually represents. And, more importantly, she is not going be paying $350 an hour for the privilege of his services.
Under fire from all sides, Fenney drafts in a public defender. Yet as Scott prepares to hand the case over to Bobby, he feels increasingly guilty about the path he is taking, because Scott still believes in the principle of justice. The question is: does he believe in it strongly enough to jeopardise everything he holds dear? And to what lengths is the dead man's power-hungry father prepared to go to test Fenney's resolve?

Thoroughly enjoyable

I loved this book, and the narrator made it twice as good. I didn't want to stop listening to it and didn't want it to end. Could we have more unabridged books from this writer please? an absolute winner!

Predictable? No!

Looking for something to satisfy a craving for a good lawyer story with heart without being sickly? - This will do it. Not only will the timbre of the reader prove attractive but also the underlying deeper (OK, not that deep!) message will make you smile - and not wince. Something to make you want to keep the ear plugs in. A good story, well told by a ear friendly voice.

Easy Listen

Some what predictable happy outcome but that was nice. One for justice. Very easy to listen to and I would look for this narrator again.
